1. It only takes me 20 min to shower and get dressed. About 5 to get my lunch together. But depending on how long it takes me to get going in the morning and how needy the kids are, it can take me 2 hours to get out the door.
2. My first impulse it to get someone who would style me everyday, i.e., clothes, makeup, hair, and nails; but I'm sure I could come up with something more practical than that if I wanted to...
BONUS: No. I'm asking this for me, b/c I'm going to go see a movie this weekend.

1. In the morning, about 35 minutes. I take a shower at night, but I wash/do my hair, wash my face, and do my makeup in the morning.
2. Clean my house. Cleaning probably takes the most time away from other things I either need or want to do, and I'm too cheap to pay for it right now. ETA: Now that I'm thinking about it more, I might want a chef instead, or someone who would cook and clean. I have almost given up on meals because nights the kids have activities there is no time to make a meal, and nights we don't have something going on, I don't want it to take more than 30-40 minutes to prepare the meal because then it cuts into the little bit of evening (pre-bedtime) time we have.
1. I give myself 45 minutes to an hour to get ready - this includes eating breakfast and packing up my work bag/lunch, etc. It stretches to longer depending on how much kid wrangling I have to do. 2. Laundry - if someone could just deal with my laundry, make sure it's washed, dried, folded, and put away, I'd be a happy lady. Housecleaning in general would be sweet, but I feel like laundry gets much more overwhelming. Bonus: La La Land! I got to see like 10 minutes of it on a plane and am dying to watch the rest. And Rogue One. Still haven't seen that either.

1. Probably only about 30 minutes. I shower at night so the morning is just finish drying my hair and style or just re-style. Make up takes about 5 minutes. 2. I think if someone could do my hair and nails (hands and feet) I would be a happy camper. I feel guilty about getting my hair done every 6 weeks but I'm in too deep at this point. And I haven't had a pedicure in about 2 years. Bonus: I don't even know what movies are out. Thanks Hulu.
1. How long does ("did" if you are currently job seeking) it take you to get ready for work? 20-25 minutes
2. If you could have someone provide a service for you for free for the rest of your life, what would it be? Cleaning would be the most practical but I also wouldn’t mind getting weekly massages for the rest of my life.
BONUS: Are there any movies you are dying to see right now? I haven’t seen Hidden Figures yet and would like to watch that at some point
1. Currently job seeking. I'm not sure how long it would take me now with 2 kids. When it was just DS1, I did most of the morning routine. I would generally take about 1 hour 15 minutes for the full routine of shower, get both of us dressed and fed, assemble my lunch, and a little bit of down time to read him a short book or let him take his time walking to the car. In a crunch, I could skip the shower and get us out the door in 40 minutes or less.
2. Someone to clean my house. Every day. I'd love to come home and find the counters wiped and the floor swept and the toys picked up.
1. I get ready (everything but dressed) in about 20 minutes, but then usually spend another 40 drinking coffee, playing with DD, and getting food together. If I take my coffee to go, it's about 25-30. 2. House cleaner, for sure. Bonus: Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2!
1. i shower at night, so about 15 minutes to get dressed, wash face/apply sunscreen, and throw my hair in a bun. but i need 15 minutes before this to muster the motivation to actually get ready. maybe another 15 to eat, have coffee, and get my lunch together. but yes, the kids make the whole process take about 2 hours. 2. clean my house for sure! 3. not dying to see anything... but looking forward to seeing the lego batman movie on dvd bc i know it'll make me/DH/DS1 laugh.
1. I get up about 1hour and 45 minutes before I leave the house. I guess I spend about 50 minutes getting ready (standing in the shower way too long) and the rest is eating breakfast as a family and getting DD ready. I think I just need time to get ready slowly in the morning.
2. Hands down, laundry. If I could just open my closet and grab crisp, clean clothes, the world would be a better place. I almost never keep up with the folding.
Bonus: I am pretty out of touch with movies these days. But we just had a date night and saw Guardians of The Galaxy 2. Otherwise that would be on my list.

1. An hour. I wake up and can get ready for the gym in 20 minutes, then I get home and have to shower, dress, makeup. I can't do it in under an hour.
2. Organizing and picking stuff up. on a daily. Not cleaning - that's what my cleaning lady does and it's not what I REALLY need, actually picking stuff up and organizing toy bins and that kind of thing.
Bonus: I'm sure there are better things out but I really want to see Guardian of the Galaxy 2.
1. How long does ("did" if you are currently job seeking) it take you to get ready for work?
I'm pretty low maintenance. The shower takes 5 minutes (10 if I'm washing my hair and/or shaving), I don't blow dry, and I only wear makeup like 50% of the time. If I didn't have kids it would only take me 25 minutes to get out the door from when I wake up. But as it is, it takes me 60-75 minutes, by the time the baby is up, nursed, and dressed, and I greet the nanny and fix my coffee, etc. etc.
2. If you could have someone provide a service for you for free for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I can only pick one? Can I clone myself so there would always be a me at work and a me with the kids?
But seriously I would probably want a personal stylist who could do my hair every day and pick out my wardrobe so I could look amazing all the time. I'm not so good at doing this myself!
BONUS: Are there any movies you are dying to see right now? No, I'm awful with knowing what movies are out and I almost never go.
1. I shower at night. 20 minutes and that includes getting DD up and making her and my lunch. I give DD 15 minutes to get ready in the AM. Neither of us are morning people so the less time we have to dawdle and gripe at each other the better. Oh, when DH is home on the weekends it takes us close to an hour to get ready as he causes chaos.
2. Either a massage therapist or housekeeper
3. DH really wants to see Guardians of the Galaxy other than that I have no idea what is playing. Beauty an the Beast was really good, going to watch it was my carrot to finish tax season.
1. It takes me less than 10 minutes to get myself ready for work. I put on my makeup in less than 5 minutes and then after I get the kids ready and put sunscreen on them, I put on my clothes. I have thick, dry hair, so I get a blowout once every 5-6 days and then my hair doesn't require any upkeep. I exercise at work or the Y and quickly shower there afterwards, without getting my face or hair wet. However, I'm on my own in the morning since DH leaves for work by 5:30 am, so it still takes me about 1.5 hours to get all three of us (soon to be four...) out the door.
2. Clean my house or cook for me. Maybe just a FT housekeeper? We have someone come clean every two weeks but there is a lot more to do than what that covers...
Bonus - not really. We have a date night Saturday so I need to check what's out.

Could I hire someone to service MH? Kind of like a second wife to actually parent his child-persona. She would do his laundry, grab the remote, sign off on his outfit, tell him he's great, pick up whatever he puts down, listen to him complain, fetch him TP, fill his car up with gas. And, yes, ladies, give him a little pick-me-up when I don't feel like it. Although I might require that she be a robot.
